Hi, does anyone know where to buy coconut water? Somewhere in the Sengkang/Hougang/Bedok/Tampines/Serangoon areas would be good. Heard it is good to drink just before delivery. But not every fruit stall may sell young coconuts.
And can we drink it more than once before delivery?

Thanks for the info. I went down to NTUC and Giant but they only sell the Thai coconut type. Heard Thai coconut is not recommended. The ones from M'sia is better. Is it true that M'sia ones are those round in shape whereas those Thai ones are sharp in shape?
Just wondering where to get the M'sia types? Can anyone advise?
as long is the young coconut (the big ones) n not those small rounf ones is ok.
i drank 1-2 times a week from my 8th month onwards.
Thanks, I just bought one from the wet market at a stall selling fruits. Bought the young coconut - thai type. Gave up finding the m'sia types.
I must say the thai one is very sweet. I intend to drink one this week and another next week. Should be delivering my baby just after CNY. Hope that is sufficient. :-)
they say the thai coconuts got artificial sweetener injected in it .
better to get the green ones. i go hawker centre the fruit stalls got many green ones.
yes, it does taste quite sweet. thought it was natural sweetness :0
anyway, I think Giant at Tampines may have the M'sia type - if I guess correctly. Will get my hubby buy one next week. Then I will taste the difference. Understand that M'sia type is not so sweet as the Thai ones.
Get from Cold Storage more fresh...
On your 7th month onwards, drink once a week and alternate day two weeks before your labour... =D
oh really? okay will consider buying from Cold Storage then... thanks!
anyone keep passing gas after drinking coconut water?
i was passing gas till at night after i drink the coconut water.
maybe i too heaty already.
Hi there, I just delivered my baby girl and after two rounds of drinking coconut water, she came out cleaned. So, coconut water does help! thanks to all for your great advices.
And regarding passing out gas, I dont't think so it could have been due to coconut water as this is considered "cooling". Maybe it could be due to other factors :-)
yah i'd like to knw hw coconut water helps too..
No, it is not to ease delivery. It is more for the baby's skin. I heard that there would not be those "white flakes" (something like this) on the baby when born (though some believe it might help to prevent jaundice which I do not personally think so). The baby skin would be cleaner and smoother. Bird nest would also help. I prefer those that need to boil rather than straight from the bottle. But it all depends on individual's preference.
